Treclin Gel 30g
Treclin contains the active substances clindamycin and tretinoin. Clindamycin is an antibiotic. It limits the growth of bacteria associated with acne and the inflammation caused by these bacteria. Tretinoin normalizes the growth of superficial skin cells and causes normal shedding of the cells that clog the hair follicles in areas with acne. This prevents the build-up of sebum and the formation of early acne lesions (blackheads and whiteheads). These active substances are more effective when combined than when used separately. Treclin is used on the skin to treat acne in patients 12 years and older.
